    Currently I am managing Facebook ad campaign of my client. My ads are on and active(approved) but the stats are showing no activity. I have set up all the things i.e. Daily Ad budget, Targeting custom audience. Its been 3 days since the campaign started but still no activity showing, no budget deduction as well. I have paused a ongoing advert set and created new advert set for my new ads. Need Help!

    Key points:
    1: I am Targeting Countries like USA, Canada, Finland and Poland
    2: Potential reach: 57,000,000 people
    3. My bid is manual and it is max $0.35
    4. I have changed the placement setting but made it only for mobile news feed.
    5: Campaign is for product (T Shirts) sale.

    1. What countries are you targeting?
    2. What is the estimated number of audience FB gave you?
    3. Is your bid manual or automatic?
    4. Did you change the placement setting and made it for the right column?
    5. Is this campaign for engagement? What type ?

    Your bid looks already high. I was expecting no reach due to low bid , but that is strange now. I suggest you change your bid and make it automatic. You can lower your budget to test the results first. Usually automatic bids gets more reach. I am not expert but I have been testing and learning FB ads for around two weeks and spent around $ 150.
    Another suggestion is that you run the campaign using video views,but automatic bid should work fine in getting more reach with lower cost as well.

    Based on my experience, I recommend you to do automatic bid as well
